Hey everyone! Sorry for the lateness but sickness and migraines are running amok. On to our Creative Spotlight!
Meet Deedra Nichole. She is a multi-talented creative. She paints, does photography, digital art, sews, and crotchets. She told us she was born a creative and that her mom taught her art.
She told us that she became an Indie Artist because she wanted to leave a piece of her behind for others and she loves the ease and control she has creating her work. When dealing with any kind of creative block, she told us she either takes a nap or takes a break from the work and comes back to it later with a fresh mind.
In her free time she crochets, knits, does watercolor artwork and draws. She lives in Kentucky and will be, with her two beautiful daughters, combining their family with her soon-to-be husband and his three…
So, ink splashes is in review for the E-book formats. I have been working for the last hour to try to get the paperback settled. Ebook layout is so different than the paperback. It is just simple things that keep hanging up the process. You can literally have it perfect in a pdf or doc format and then when you check the preview it is not even close.
And as I was typing this I finally got the paperback into review. It generally takes 24-72 hours to get into published state. As soon as it is I will post release day links.
Hi. Alot to cover today…and I am struggling with a migraine, so please forgive me for typos that may occur. Yesterday, I finished writing the poetry for Ink Splashes. I also started the next volume. The title of the next volume is Whispers of the Muse.
I will be working on edits and layout this week. Then next week I should be releasing Ink Splashes. I am also working for Fae Corps this week on the anthology we are releasing, Under the Mists. We have a Publication Date of July 26. We are in the layout/final edit stage there as well. I will tomorrow be posting the promo images we have for Under the mists instead of writing tips due to how covered over in work I am. The last full week in July should also see the release of the summer edition of Creative’s Rising.
I am hoping to next thursday do a release day link page. That is going to require some major layout work this week. I do not know if I will be able to get it done in time. I am going to attempt..I will likely be posting poetry from former volumes for Monday. That saves me from worrying about writing new for it. I will note which volume the poem can be found in.
Thank you all for your support. Now I am going to hide away from the light, as my head is trying to explode.
